Today, the FCC gave Novatel Wireless’ MiFi 4082 the U.S. Government’s official seal of approval. What makes the 4082 unique from other MiFi devices, you ask? The addition of a WiMAX radio of course. The device will sport a CDMA radio capable of 1xRTT and EV-DO data along with a more attractive, 4G-ish, WiMAX option. If we had to venture a guess, we would expect to see the 4082 hit wireless carrier Sprint sometime in January of 2011.
